controllers, less reserve tsa people. they're not going to be able to open up the extra line in security, and the air traffic controllers if things get busy, if you have got weather, there is going to be problems. fly early or fly late. martha: is this dangerous, peter? that makes me nervous to fly. should i be? >> no. i mean they have done it safely. we're going through the safest period in aviation history. the faa is not going to compromise safety but they are going to take their time and that's boeing to cause trouble, particularly if you're flying during busy times. martha: all right. peter goelz, we'll see how it works out. thank you so much, sir. good to see you. >> thanks, martha. bill: there is deadly flooding in six different states and concerns are growing that things are about to get a whole lot worse. the spring thaw is here for images like these. we'll take you there. martha: big question today on this. did the boston bombing suspects slip through the cracks of our intelligence? we're learning what the fbi warned about in terms of radical views of the older brother. top law
the tide of war was receding. jon: there are no full-body scans or tsa pat-downs via the internet and it seems these days a lot of communication with agents in this country, witness nadal hasan, for instance, are taking place via the internet? >> there is no doubt there is a lot of radicalization and planning and other kinds of activity that is going on by the internet. of course everyone knows the internet isn't a sovereign space. you can be anywhere in the world and still have an effect anywhere else in the world. it is one of those major areas where i'm sure intelligence agencies work very, very hard. and our laws at home may not be up to speed with what our national security needs are while we're trying to preserve a relatively free society. jon: it appears the two brothers were involved in the actual bombing, crazy aftermath, shootouts with police and so forth. what about a wider support structure? who paid for all of this? >> well, obviously the we need to know a lot of these kinds of answers. i think it is very implausible that these two operated in isolation. even if you j
